Planetarium Workshop: Choosing a First Telescope with Planetarium Astronomer Scott Young

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on November 7, 2020 at 1:00 pm

Buying a telescope is like buying a car: the best choice depends on your experience level and what you want to do with it. Come and learn the ins and outs of telescopes, with specific recommendations by our Planetarium Astronomer Scott Young.

The workshop features basics of telescope operation, what you can expect to see with it, and what features of a telescope are important. We’ll bust some myths about telescopes as well, to ensure you don’t wind up with a telescope that doesn’t work for you.

Workshop participants will be able to order their own telescopes as part of a bulk buy (timed to arrive before the holiday season), to save on shipping, duty, and other charges.

Masks are required to be worn by all participants and staff for the duration of the workshop.

Choose from an in-person, physically-distanced workshop, or a Zoom seminar from the comfort of your own home.
